worlds apart, we choose to look for common ground in the turkey has reportedly blog, finland, and sweden from joining nato off the nordic countries. honda been the official applications on cory demands the honda accord cause terrorist group problem by helping can spell code almost a 1000 and ukrainian troop cancer rendered it the as of self factor in the dorm bus city of mario pulse with captured neo nazis from the as of the battalion due to some trial for war crimes. so as you can official for just local start picking up extra work to help themselves out. the government apparently powerless to do anything about storing consume appliances which have already hit a 14 year high. the
12:01 pm
news at very welcome. this is all the international with the latest news update is a pleasure to have a company. now turkey has reportedly blocks the official process of accepting finland and sweden into nato. comes to style is off the nordic countries 100 in the applications at the headquarters of the military block anchorage. says this again, seeing the 2 countries join the alliance unless they stopped supporting rebel groups including cuts and handle, the suspects that turkey calls terrorists, swedish on finish. officials were reportedly planning to visit ankara for talks, but took his presence and it says they shouldn't bother trying to woo him. to get him is done. our only expectation from nato allies is for them to 1st understand our sensitivity respect and finally support it. so what is our sensitivity is protecting our borders from terror attacks. you won't give us back terrorists, but you ask us for nato membership. nato is an entity for security and organization
12:02 pm
for security. therefore, we cannot say yes to the security organization being deprived of security exception off to nordic countries. require the approval of all 13 nato members with their decision. they're requiring modification by national parliaments and that process is expected to take up to one year. we gazed opinions on the streets of the swedish capital where some local have mixed feelings about ditching that countries neutrality. i think it's a part of our country been something also to terry exercises of different kinds. but it's still, i think it's a big shift for our identity. i think it's a bad one because we have always been free from such associations and that we would be a part that can i can discount people together over
12:03 pm
being different. the thing under laurie and so on, i think it's the right decision to make right now. but that doesn't mean that we abandon our, our foreign or defense politics because we can change not from within. i think. and chris move has led to fresh tensions within nato. with the us and its allies pushing for sweden and finland to join the blog. it's not the only point of tension between the nato member states, though with greece as prime minister has all us congress to nick the deal to sell advanced weaponry to turkey. denouncing anchor as a source of instability. the last thing that made to neat out of time one of focus is on helping ukraine defeat russia's. aggression is another source of instability on nato's south eastern flag. and ask you to take
12:04 pm
this into account. when you make defense procurement decisions concerning the eastern mediterranean, greek leader has expressed concern about biden's proposal to approve $400000000.00 worth of weapons for turkey. including modern missiles and equipment and chris lease of american made f. 16 fighter jets less. while grease itself is processing a deal to buy the latest, lockheed martin f, $35.00 jet. at the same time, the turkish foreign minister is company awaiting a meeting with american counts party years after, while entre pushes back against the proposed expansion of nato. some western media outlets in our pitching a proposal that ticket itself should be kicked out of the us lead alliance. it forces policies that are hostile to nato. it's not an ally anymore. it's time to external turkey from nato. let it go to russia, let it go to china,
12:05 pm
let it grow to around good ratings. let's get some insight from turkish political scientist, nathan on brazil time. thank you very much for joining us on the program. it's good to see. i'd love to know your take on such suggestions that a key nato power, such as turkey, with one of the world's largest militaries, should be excluded from nato. thank you for your invitation. first of all, i have to say that since the western media, reflective voice of the governments, it's normal for such needs and evolution to come out again to start. if the western media objective, i will talk that the best that they would consider these facts. although turkey hasn't been a member of nato since 1952 western countries have never stopped the anti turkish activities. i mean, it was what kind of for us that the members of nato, like united states of america,
12:06 pm
france, germany, belgium, asked to be them. and the finance and the others also, they never stop to finance and not just the sport financially, but also for sport, military peers, organizations like with k y, p g r, p y, d, and the letter is organization also that they from the k. so now that they are supporting these groups, these terrorist organizations, which act against turkish national intern and the, and also i want to, i want to answer them. then with a christian, i mean the twist and media that should turn you have remain silent while the western world was think turkey and attacking its national interest and give her take his current stance against the accession of fen london suite. and just how much pressure do you think anchor is coming under from its nato allies right now?
12:07 pm
i mean, today it's sure that after the present the evidence that the turkeys against not just member civil incent financing membership or from that or should the rest of increased, especially in the political and diplomatic fields. and it's possible that. busy this is the discretion with accelerate, in, in again, searching especially in economic field like turkey could face against the sanctions that russia presley and also in syria and also in eastern mediterranean zone that with could use tools or creation against turkey in the field. but, but today it is not that, but these distractions are not new for turkey, for 4 digits that we faced, this kind of similar operations. and there's a,
12:08 pm
there's activities. but now turkey have a really good relation with neighbors, like russia, like iran. so, i mean, another option today and the anchor could resist against the impressions. what do you make of the latest comments from greece, with the prime minister calling on the u. s. congress to stop selling arms to turkey. in greece is now getting involved. i mean, unfortunately, the greek government says become an instrument of awful us today. just as it was that during the 1st world war, at that time, the act with the british empire is the good thing. and today that they are doing the same mistake. they're acting with united states, not only against turkey, but also against russia. if you look on greece today, that you will see that the territorial release, it became like
12:09 pm
a kind of military camp or for united states. thousands of american soldiers, american tanks, american military equipment base on, on greece. so i think that the government puts engage in publications in see, and also in mid eastern mediterranean, on the sport of united states and possibly possibly with the sport off off natal. i hope the greek people we will get rid of this because the, these politicians degree politicians will serve the interest of us, but not the, the interest of the people. like us political scientist on our finances gazelle time. many thanks for your time. we appreciate it. thank you very much. thank you. ah, let's take a look now at the latest pictures released by russia's defense ministry found the
12:10 pm
dom bassetti of mario palomo, ukrainian competent, surrendered at the as a star factory on wednesday. at least 959 chips. a said to a pallet themselves out to russian. lead forces there. in the past 3 days, our correspondent is on the ground egleston. well, the fight is from the as of style c works, they keep surrendering again. the processes are going on rather slowly, but not because the militia that the nets, people's republic, or russia, are reluctant to take in these prisoners of war. but rather because there were so many of them, in fact, the commanders of the de nest people's militia. they have said that they estimated that there were, may be hundreds of neo nazi fighters and ukrainian soldiers hiding in the catacombs underneath the as of south sea works. but in fact, the actual number turned out to be around 2500. so more than 2000 now again, people are surrendering neo nazis. us rendering soldiers are surrendering
12:11 pm
surprisingly, a lot of women among them. but the top brass, the top command of the, as of neo nazi battalion, the ones that were making statements that were appealing to the pope, to the authorities, to the international community publicly. they are still down there in the bunkers and it is unclear as to when they will surrender. and in fact, what they are planning to do next. now those who are injured because there are quite a few of those they are, they receive medical care, they are in a very poor state. many have burns all over their bodies. many have lost limbs, or in general their, their wounds are infected. and in fact, it would have made all the difference if they had received order to surrender earlier because well, quite a few even lives may have been saved by the doctors have that in that people's republic. so, but again, they did not receive that order. they received orders to stay, put the ukrainian authorities, the ukrainian command,
12:12 pm
and made the decision to keep all those very, very badly injured people without access to proper medicine. again, they keep surrendering and those who are healthy, they aren't being placed in a hotel or anything like that. they're being placed role in the penitentiary for. let's ease again, not because they have received any sentence already, but rather this is how the authorities here are sending a message that these people have been captured, that they have surrendered and they are prisoners of war. wounded soldiers who surrendered from mario po, sounds of star plans being sent to a hospital, a nearby navarro as well as those we heard from some of them in the morning were being treated decently. there was no physical or psychological pressure on me . the food is excellent, the doctors checked my leg and said everything will be fine with were being treated very well. i have a shrapnel wound and a torn tendons. they help us treat us and they said that after half
12:13 pm
a year of rehabilitation, everything will be fine. with the doctors provided me with 1st aid, bandages, and food. i really can't complain. he k inflation and consumer prices have hit a 40 year reco, reaching at 9 percent last month, as, according to the latest data. the cost of essentially, like food on transport, arising at a record pace, jeopardizing low and middle income families, many of whom are forced to spend their whole salaries on energy bills and rely on food banks to feed their families. household costs and now up more than 50 percent and more increase is not ruled out by the official regulator. right now the u. k. has the highest inflation rate among the strongest european economies and the g 7 group to reduce expenses. many have given up heating homes and decided to go out less 44 percent of those surveyed have switched to cheaper food and public transport. and some people even have to skip meals to tackle economic challenges.
12:14 pm
the government is allocated 22000000000 pants to help, but admitted that it can't fully protect people. and the countries that safeguarding minister has proposed people work extra hours or find a better job. make sure that people are able to protect themselves better. whether that is by taking or more hours leading to a better paid job, some people, they may be able to access additional hours. but of course it's, it's not going to work the people who are already working in 3 jobs. and that's why we need to have the other matches in place, such as the all the help that we're putting into the schools that help with the local authorities. from the conservatives. for a long time, we get out of touch with reality. they're probably not very aware of how poor people live challenges for people to stay sick in the normal people becoming homeless, i'm going to rise people not just chasing homelessness,
12:15 pm
but the ones who can understand the problem going to freeze it when you talk about very poor people i'm not employed how late i went by october already economy, suggestion heating costs will go up again as can be tough times ahead of how long can this all hold together? you know, how long before people, if it's not the press and people themselves on social media start asking really questions. one of those will be, you know, how much money do we really need to spend? what should you spend when we should be spending 1300000000 pounds on military 8? so you can go which could be spent on creating jobs or use training. the u. s. is to ease some of its crippling sanctions on venezuela, allowing major american oil companies chevron, to restart operations in the country of the years of heavily criticized in the government of president nicholas madura and encouraging descent. well,
12:16 pm
as counsellor live to our tea correspondence with life, do i think corresponding caleb more now can i get to see you say was behind this decision by the us. so we have joe, by now the president united states stepping up and saying that some of the sanctions on venezuela will be lifted and the american oil companies will be enabled to start operating in the country to some degree. now there will be some sanctions that will remain in effect, and this comes after years, the united states calling for the overthrow of that as well in government. we have united states that actually withdrew recognition from venice whalers elected president nicholas montero, declared juan guido to be legitimate president of the country. there were attempts to overthrow the venezuelan government coups that were attempted by the state in which elements the military, others recorded for the possibility of toppling nicholas montero. and so now we
12:17 pm
have this long pattern of us hostility to venezuela. that's the context for these new development. we'll talk about some and let's review some of what's been said over the years. against the repressive regime targeting matures inner circle and close advisors. the regime, a former president nicholas madura is illegitimate but madura griffin, tyranny will be smashed and broken the day after the majority regime falls. there is a bright future for the venezuelan people and take the following actions to isolate the euro dictatorship. if you support the missouri regime, you too are subject to sanctions. now these kinds of statements continued after the prompt administration, left office under biden's administration with a new us secretary of state anthony blank. and darrow was referred to as
12:18 pm
a brutal dictator. the usa was hostile, but now at this point with talk of the u. s. a, i completely cutting off russian oil. it seems like they are in the process of lifting some sanction, not a name, and they want to continue a policy of maximum pressure on venezuela, maximum pressure. they say, in order to move ahead with, you know, trying to stabilize the country, trying to move the country out of the leadership of montero maximum pressure seems to be the talking point that we're hearing from the bio new ministration. let's take a listen. we want to be very clear about this point. sanctions on the madeau regime will remain in place. we are not doing this to reverse trumps maximum pressure campaign. our policy overall has not changed so they seem to be speaking out of both sides of their mouth. on the one hand they are lifting sanctions. they are allowing american oil companies to operate and down as well as part of their
12:19 pm
shifting of us energy policy in regards to trying to cut off any rush in energy on the global market. but at the same time, they do indicate that they want to continue the stabilizing venezuela. they want to put maximum pressure on the country in order to bring down the elected leader. miss nicholas manero. so interesting moves from the united states, not a clear message. we sent caleb anything for those details. i thought a correspondent, telecom open speaking to his line from new york. now the commissioner of the council of europe for human rights has appealed against the possible extradition of julian, a song from britain to the us. we can expand that is currently in new k custody while the consider is what to do with him next as he's wanted in the us on espionage charges. it is my view that the indictment by the united states against mister assigned, raises important questions about the protection of those that published classified information in the public interest, including information that exposes human rights violations. the broad and vague
12:20 pm
nature of the allegations against mr. assange and the offences listed in the indictment are troubling. as many of them concern activities at the core of investigative journalism in europe and beyond. consequently, allowing mr. sanchez extradition on this basis would have a chilling effect on media freedom and could ultimately hamper the press and performing its task as a purveyor of information and a public watchdog and democratic societies. last month, julianna's songs moved a step closer to extradition. following the decision by a london magistrate court, the ruling formerly issued an order at the end of april to extradite a songs to the west where he's accused of revealing state secrets. when publishing tribes have classified us military documents on wiki leeks, despite the exact same cause routing against his extradition in january last year, fighting possible safety risks for assault in the us, there was a blow, has been in british custody since 2019. thus discuss this further. now let's post
12:21 pm
life to taylor her dec independent journalist. thank you for joining us on the program is good to see taylor. how do you feel about the human rights commission? is less so what was your position on the extradition of a songs? yes, this letter really does highlight what's at stake with this case. the prosecution of julian assange is the most consequential press freedom case of our modern era. not only is assigned his life at stake and his health in his well being, but the public's right to know is at stake. and this really seeks to criminalize standard in normal journalistic activity that journalists engage in all the time. it will really fundamentally shape how journalists can continue on with their work . and this is also, of course, a retaliation against you, julie, and assigned an wiki leeks for reporting on very embarrassing activities on behalf of the u. s. government. so this was public interest journalism that julie and assigned was engaged with. and he really exposed to
12:22 pm
u. s. war crimes in iraq and afghanistan. c, i a spying on innocent citizens as well as torture. so this case is very serious and extradited. julian assigned to the united states is a blatant violation of human rights and will what many other journalists at risk in the future. so let's say a song, ge does get sent to the u. s. which is looking quite likely would you think will happen? well, every sunday is extradited to the united states. we know that his life will be at stake. not only to the lower court judge ruled that it would be oppressive under section 90. 1 of the u. k. extradition act of 2003 to extra date is not to the united states, but also the high court judges ruled that it would be oppressive to extradite juliana such. let me be clear to everyone listening right now. that if julian, his thoughts were to be expedited to the united states, he would not in any way shape or form, receive
12:23 pm
a fair trial. he would be tried in the eastern district court of virginia. this court case would be closed off from the public journalists like myself and others would not be able to access or cover the case. there would be no press coverage because it would be considered a national security case. and so it is imperative and very important that you came home secretary, pre patel does not sign off on its extradition order. do you think the way the us has handle this whole situation? its been hounding of a songs really to think it is damaged, america's reputation as a democratic country. absolutely. each day that the united states continued to prosecute this case, it gets one more day that the united states, we trade its own constitution and really goes against its own 1st amendment, which has become sort of the global standard for press freedom and the united states in the u. k. among other governments and individuals are complicit in the
12:24 pm
torture of a journalist and that is julian. it's not been going on for over a decade now more than a decade, and it told me to sign, she's been in some form of isolation or detention. and this is again, all for public interest with journalism that one julian is sancha numerous awards. and i also want to make note as well that the united states intelligence agency had serious plans to fascinate join. it's ours when he was in the u. k. i b equitorial end of the speaking asylum, so it is just absolutely outrageous. the u. k. government is considering extradited, gillian, assigned to a country intelligence agencies, conspire to assassinate him. this might be an, as we know, tailor some of the most shocking revelations by wikileaks have been related to us war crimes in iraq and afghanistan. do you think we can it has influence the way the military operates through is what now?
12:25 pm
well, throughout the expedition proceedings we heard weeks of testimony about how we can lease publications really lead to real world change. and i would say that the publications specifically related to iraq and afghanistan and the worth taking place there really shaped the way people viewed these wars in the middle east. and as i said with you least publications really did lead to positive change in the world. and we were log, for example, are critical and really essential to understanding the severity of civilian casualties that took place in the middle east. one of the witnesses, an attorney cloud, stafford smith said that he use wiki leave publications in his own cases. and specifically with regard to torture as well as the. ringback publications that were related to drone strikes in afghanistan. it also really changed people's perception and opinions and understanding of drone strikes in other countries. so i would say
12:26 pm
that with the lead has really contributed to a role in a very positive way to help the public understand exactly what government are doing in their own name. tell her and dependent gentleness learning thanks for your time and your inside to be appreciated. yes, thank you. now moscow, how the key is the west of an unprecedented surge of lesson phobia has an increasing number of russian sports and cultural figures a band from performing in some western countries. ukrainian american pianists valentino lou fit say though, also facing a bond in canada. the toronto symphony orchestra has officially cuts her from the program back program of a critical remarks you made about the conflict in ukraine and don't pass well since 2015 unless it's performed for the residence of don't yes, spend on the may, 9th victory de anniversary. she also had a concert in mary. oh paul, we talked to the pianist earlier about western attitude towards russian artists. i was for beast for 80 years. what have you been because i will stand him like 80
12:27 pm
years ago in paris on untoward humans ration safe children of didn't bust? i think it's some kind of almost sadistic pleasure. i think you know you're in europe, europe say say or we have to cancel russian guess incense council, russian artists and still received guess you know what i think would be quite so was if you cancel guess if you dont like us so much and you dont council culture, i think that artists should not really express themselves political illustration and miller, sal cumberford. and i also think that the audience would be able to listen to artist, you know, we should all leave our differences back home. because when we listen for a mining of or chick calls your beethoven, it's our common harry fish. as civilizations human beings, it belongs to every one. it doesn't discriminate you ok. gosti does not discriminate whether you like mr. william or mr. by the. she doesn't care. this is about music. this about us. the managing director are one of the, one of the world's biggest opera houses has boasted to 2 russian prank callers,
12:28 pm
that being one of the 1st 2 band, russian artists from performing surge dorney also discussed the bavarian state up for suspension of a very good friend. and valerie gave in his call with renowned russian pranksters by van and alexis. those lawyers deal last i did. i was the 1st to suspend russian artist 2, a closely associated with russian propaganda youth. and despite the fact that he is a very good friend of mine, he's my suspended, the orchestra director, valerie gurdjieff. and this was despite the fact that we have known each other for 35 years. i also suspended opera singer and a tread co and some ballet dances who are very close to the regime. this is outrageous. i think this has no place in culture whatsoever. exactly, because we can only look to classical music. i don't talk about wedding marrow. it's the most non violent art, you know, unlike even cinema or theater, or pink and it's, and it's non while,
12:29 pm
and we cannot express well as we're neutral here. music starts, we're hurts ends, and we cannot do much in, or we can say that we're prob years who are against something, but all we can do is play of psion. and when is the steam with director of you know, marin or better says that he divides people in groups accordion towards the sea. and i also had the experience. i had live a cancellation letter from what a big european 1st you are also by wire in my so european weeks. and after i perform with the money i for people with this person wrote to me unfortunately because you performed with on such a day in mighty horrible, it means to you actually support which is aggression i such as daughter abbas is to have fallen for the days on takes that well chess federation, director general and mail sikowski has refilled the tea that he initiated the band on russian grandmaster sega cardiac in on this story on our website. artie
12:30 pm
